Tear Down the Walls

Back in October, Congregation Shaare Emeth and Washington University jointly presented an exhibition of modern Sukkah, the traditional Jewish structure built to commemorate the Exodus. Art Saint Louis (555 Washington Avenue; 314-241-4810 or www.artstlouis.org) builds an extension to the project with its new exhibition, Sukkah City Annex: Defining & Defying Boundaries. Artists explored the Sukkah's purpose -- that of a temporary dwelling -- through two-dimensional representations of the walls, finding a metaphor for life's expanding boundaries in the image of a structure that exists to be torn down. Sukkah City Annex is on display Monday, January 16, through Thursday, February 23; the opening reception is Saturday, January 21. Art Saint Louis is open every day except Sunday, and admission is free.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 16. Continues through Feb. 23, 2012
